Ikwekwa family health & happiness

We meet a lot of very needy and worthy folks as United States Peace Corps volunteers. I'm working with moms struggling through Post Partum depression and acute poverty here in the villages in Southern Zambia. They need the absolute basics for themselves and their families - medication, food, clothes and shoes and sometimes even a roof over their heads, especially here in our rainy season. It really doesn't take much to help a family get on their feet - YOUR donation can help buy the initial launch supplies so Moms can open a small village based business to support their families moving forward. I am here to make sure your contribution goes directly to those with the most urgent need and will show you how you've made a difference in just a few weeks. I wouldn't have believed this myself before I lived here but what we spend on coffee or lunch in a couple of days can truly change a family's life.
